Recovering Compensation

When someone is injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another, there are two primary types of damages they can sue for: economic and non-economic damages. Though financial compensation simply cannot make up for the losses you’ve incurred as a result of your accident, it can help you on your way to recovery. Economic damages deal with the following, among other things:

  • The cost of medical treatment
  • The cost of lost past and future wages
  • The cost of daily household tasks you can no longer perform

 

On the other hand, some of the ailments that non-economic damages can compensate you financially for are as follows:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of consortium

Who's to Blame?

Car Accident Causes

One person is at fault for the majority of car accidents. That’s to say that most of the time, had one person not behaved negligently, any given car accident would not have occurred. Unfortunately, despite most car accidents being entirely preventable, they still happen all the time. Some of the most common causes of car accidents that we’ve are as follows:

  • Texting/looking at a GPS while driving
  • Driving while applying makeup
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving while tired
  • Speeding
  • Driving while eating
  • Ignoring traffic lights and signs
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Reckless driving

Documenting a Car Accident

Car accidents are jarring, and because of this, after being involved in one, many people are unsure of what to do. This is entirely understandable, however, like with most things in life, it’s best to have a plan in place. That’s why, if you can, you should do your best to take the following steps:

  1. Take a picture of the driver’s license plate and ask them for a copy of their insurance information. Photograph that as well, if you can.
  2. Call the police to the scene of the accident. Emergency services will send an ambulance to the scene and also write up a report of the accident.
  3. Ask witnesses for their contact information, such as their email address, phone number, or any other way by which you may reach them. They can corroborate your claim at a later date.
  4. Keep a copy of all medical documentation regarding your injury, as our firm can use this information to prove the extent to which you were injured–physically, emotionally, and economically.
  5. Hire a competent Buffalo car accident lawyer who can help you gather and present all information needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim. Our attorneys have over three decades of combined experience, and we would be proud to put that experience to work in your case.
Over the last five years, you have fought tooth and nail on our behalf. You have put so much time and effort into our case. I never doubted you or that I made the right decision in having you represent us.

The moment you’re injured in an accident, the clock starts ticking on your personal injury claim. New York State has a statute of limitations in place, which means that if you wait too long to bring a claim, you’ll likely permanently lose your right to do so. This is why it’s paramount that you retain the services of a competent personal injury lawyer as soon after the date of your accident as you can.
